THE STORY:

NextStep's "Wheelchair for a Day" Challenge

NextStep’s Wheelchair for a Day Challenge (WFD) is a global public awareness campaign aimed at increasing the understanding of the daily challenges and accessibility issues associated with living in a wheelchair. WFD challenges able-bodied people to spend one day in a wheelchair and to share their experience with the world through social media. The goal is to raise funds to allow NextStep to expand to communities nationwide and to educate and encourage the public to be more proactive in supporting those living in wheelchairs. Accept the Challenge and Wheelchair for a Day!
